-  -Dxxx, -lxxx, -Lxxx, -fxxx, -mXXX, -Kxxx
-                   These system specific options will be passed through to the
-                   compiler to allow you to define preprocessor symbols, specify
-                   additional libraries, library directories or other compiler
-                   options. It might be worth noting that some compilers
-                   generate code specifically for processor the compiler
-                   currently executes on. This is not necessarily what you might
-                   have in mind, since it might be unsuitable for execution on
-                   other, typically older, processor. Consult your compiler
-                   documentation.
